The first regional lot being offered covers London, but 10 further lots covering England, Wales and Scotland will be advertised in the coming months.
LHC director John Skivington said he was keen to see smaller firms come forward. “Like our customers, we’re increasingly focused on encouraging local contractors to submit a tender for local opportunities,” he said, “as we understand the benefits this brings to communities in terms of job creation, training and skills.”
